    As a Canadian, unless told otherwise, you can be in the US for 6 months. You however need to be careful, as many people think that there are no issues with remotely working for a foreign company from within the US but this is not necessarily true. I would advise that many officers will deem that as unauthorized work. The argument will be that because you can do this remotely, why couldn’t a US citizen or Permanent Resident do so as well? To conclude, just because a Canadian is allowed into the US for 6 months, it does not mean that an officer will allow you in for that long. Further, if you are seeking admission for an extended period of time, then be prepared for detailed questions on how you will be supporting yourself.
